The Blockchain Game Alliance has organised a series of live talks with some of the most influential and active players in the industry. During this panel conversation our guest speakers Gauthier Zuppinger (NonFungible.com), Alex Atallah (OpenSea) and David Moore(Blockrocket) will be discussing about the crypto market dynamics, the balance between the offer and the demand, and the market strategies that apply to the primary and secondary market in the crypto space.
We aim to investigate the nature of the rapid evolution of the secondary market: trustworthy news to follow, strategies to apply when investing in crypto from both the buyer and the seller perspective and how to establish when is a good time to place an offer or retrieve it.
In recent years Blockchain technology has redefined the gaming industry. By having in-game assets created, owned and managed by their users, blockchain based games are looking at reshaping the industry economy, with a system of rewards to increase the game sustainability for the players and the creators. A nascent way to incentivise the collective audience to participate in the development of the games has created a new formula for the gamification of NFT assets and formed a natural barrier, a deterrent, to prevent malicious actors to jeopardise the economy of the game.
By understanding the “secret recipe” of what drives the secondary market interest in blockchain based games and other projects, one could imagine to create a forecast to anticipate the increase or the decrease in value of NFT assets, which are, often in a matter of hours resold to a new owner, gaining or losing their intrinsic or functional value according to the above actors.
In this week’s top ten blockchain game projects we find Sorare, a fantasy soccer game on blockchain, which reached a total sale of 3631 cards over the last seven days (31/08/20) reaching a total of $237,989.12. Decentraland, a virtual reality platform based on the Ethereum blockchain, achieved a total weekly sale of 171 assets, worth a total of $83,470.36. And Axie Infinity, a pet community blockchain game, concluded a total sales number of assets to 975, worth a total of $28,501.38 USD.
